NET © Notes

tn Grk “And Simon.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

tn Grk “answering, Simon said.” This is redundant in contemporary English and has been simplified in the translation to “Simon answered.”

tn The word ἐπιστάτης is a term of respect for a person of high status (see L&N 87.50).

tn The expression “at your word,” which shows Peter’s obedience, stands first in the Greek clause for emphasis.

tn Or “let down.”
